Nigerian Used and Tokunbo Chevrolet Venture in Nigeria
The Chevrolet Venture was not officially marketed in Nigeria, so all the ones available in Nigeria were imported from foreign countries. We cannot tell if they are previously used or brand new, but if they were previously used, they are the Tokunbo versions. With regards to brand new or Tokunbo Chevrolet Venture that were used in Nigeria, they are called “Registered” vehicles.
The Best Chevrolet Venture year to Buy
Only one generation manufactured, hence we cannot recommend the the latest model. However, the last year of manufacture was in 2005, and we believe the people at General Motors did a very good job by making the 2005 Chevrolet Venture the best ever produced one in their line-up. With regards to vehicle years of manufacture, we mostly advise purchasing the latest year of production, because there are advancements done but the 2004 Chevrolet Venture and 2003 Chevrolet Venture year models are also similar to the 2005 model.
